  • The overarching goal of this joint/collaborative work is to explore the feasibility of stereospecific chirality transfer during 1,3 Dipolar Cycloaddition (1,3-DC) using optically active 2-pyridone atropisomers/rotamers and azomethine ylides. The proposed research has the potential to establish new paradigms in the synthesis of optically active nitrogen-containing heterocycle scaffolds. At the onset of this project, we will be able to demonstrate that stereospecific 1,3-DC reaction can be achieved using optically active 2-pyridone atropisomers/rotamers provided that thermal racemization (between the 2-pyridone optical antipodes) is minimized.

    This PhD work will explore the use of atropisomeric 2-pyridones in axial-to- central chirality transfer during stereospecific 1,3-DC reaction to afford N-containing heterocycles.

    Offer Requirements Specific Requirements

    The candidate will be involved in the synthesis of pyridone-based heterocycles and analogs through 1,3-DC. Fundamental knowledge in organic chemistry and medicinal chemistry is required in order to develop atroposelective generation of pyridones and stereocontrolled dipolar cycloaddition of azomethine ylide. A highly motivated candidate is expected with good skills in chemistry/biology/spectroscopy/photochemistry interface work. The ideal candidate is required to have acceptable oral and writing proficiencies in English.
